How to build subscription application with own instance

My question title may not appropriate as I am not so aware of how to call it. I will appreciate it if anyone can edit to fits the query.

I am planning to build a web application where users will subscribe. For instance, CRM or Project management application. I want to have a separate instance and database with a custom domain for enterprise subscribers, and I may have a common database or instance for non-enterprise subscribers. The subscription will be handled through a marketing website, where all subscribers will checkout and have their own account.

  • Marketing website to subscribe
  • Application instance / website/ database / etc

Once the subscription period is over and it is not renewed, they will lose access. If they do not renew/reactivate for x time, the instance will destroy itself.

I am quite confident with PHP and MySQL, have some knowledge of AWS and Digital Ocean. I am planning to use Laravel for serverside. However, I am open to other languages as well, such as python.`

Can anyone help me to learn the best approach for the system I want to make. Pros and Cons and things to be considered? Also, approach to make a mobile application for the subscriber where they can access their own instance.

Hi there,

I have also been using Laravel for a while now and I believe that it is a great choice for building a SaaS project.

I’ve been quite happy with Laravel Wave as it comes with out of the box Authentication, Subscriptions, Invoices, Announcements, User Profiles, API, and etc. That way you could focus only on the functionality.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
